The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" April 23, 1969, at the Ark, Boston, MA, U.S.A.
I downloaded this show because Stephen>Its a sin>Stephen is "uncut" like it says in the "notes".
The recording, mix, performance and transfer is "excellent" for it's age, and history.
Nothing a little 10 band EQ can't fix. Use Your Windows Media Player's SOS WOW effects if you want.
"Dark Star" is fascinating.
Original "Dark Star" composition and sound from 1969.
Garcia's sound is fat, and alive, his Gibson SG sound is something.
Click on "other shows" to find more complete shows from 1969-04-23. Charlie Miller has one up on the IA that kicks butt.
I hope we get to hear the rest of the shows described in the notes.
Nothing like "dear ol' buddy" with "Official Channels" to give the whole "trader thing" a bit of mystery.
Who is this guy? The "Deep Throat" of underground bootleg GRATEFUL DEAD shows?
I will be scouring the IA in hopes of discovering these "shows".
Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.
Thanks for the Love.

Thanks for this. I was hoping that there was an uncut version of the Steven> It's a Sin> Steven floating around somewhere. Great story too. Five stars for the rare find, but somewhat less for sound quality -- not that I'm unappreciative, but I'd love to see a little clean-up work on this.
